Cool Classics Chevrolet Chevelle

The Chevrolet Chevelle is one of the most iconic muscle cars around.

Cool Classics: Chevrolet Chevelle

Chevrolet introduced the Chevelle in 1963 as a 1964 model. Though quite large by today's standards, it was classified as a midsize car. What wasn't midsize was the level of passion garnered from the very beginning, a passion that has continued for decades.


Classic Car Overview

The first generation of the Chevrolet Chevelle (1964-1967) created several iconic American muscle cars. Almost every year of the first generation is sought after, and the second generation Chevelle is not any different! 1968 marked the beginning of the second-gen Chevelle and is an interesting year because it incorporates styling elements present both in the earlier and later models. The taillights are reminiscent of 1966, while the fastback styling looks like 1970! This particular 1968 Chevelle SS396 Convertible is a real deal 138 VIN SS! The exterior received a full repaint in the Matador Red color. The body is straight and the paint quality is superb. Originally, this car was optioned as paint code R2 which denotes Matador Red with a black convertible top. This car has recently received a new convertible top with a glass rear window and it sure looks great! Additionally, when it was restored a cloth convertible top was chosen over a vinyl convertible top as it not only looks nicer but is the superior material choice. Inside the engine bay, youll find a big block, but its no 396! Thats right, its a 454 bored out with a mild cam. Its a fresh motor with less than 100 miles on it since it was built. The 454 is hooked up to a heavy duty TH400 automatic transmission to optimize cruising. The engine bay is clean and the engine has plenty of torque for when you want to roast the rear tires off a muscle car. All that power is transferred to the ground thanks to a beefy 12-bolt rear end. Stopping power comes courtesy of power front disc brakes. Additionally, the power steering is a nice bonus for this muscle car. The underside is extremely solid and a quick look on the lift and youll see how its been left un-tampered with and is free of damage. The inside is just as beautiful as the outside! Almost every piece is new or refinished, and a RetroSound radio looks right at home in the dash. Originally equipped with A/C from the factory, during the restoration a Vintage Air system was installed not only to retain air conditioning, but to make it more functional and reliable. The black bucket seat interior is the perfect match to the red and black exterior giving this Chevelle the essential muscle car look. If youre looking for a real, true, 1968 Chevelle SS Convertible with a 454, this is the car for you. This would be an excellent vehicle to cruise around in on a regular basis or to take to car shows. Looking to take the whole family? The backseat has plenty of space for kids. This bright red drop top wont last long!
